Description
 
August 13th Update: The kit is here!

It does indeed more accurately build as a Convair 440, as the engines are fitted with square exhausts, not round as seen on the 340.

The decal provided is for N5506K as delivered to Hawaiian Airlines in 1952.

This airframe still exists, and has an interesting history. It was converted to a series 580 with Allison turboprop engines in 1967 and delivered to Allegeny Airlines as N5834. I saw it as such at Toronto International in June 1970. I logged it again as C-FAUF with Soundair, again at Toronto in July 1988, then with Canair Cargo (see AHS4037) also as C-FAUF in September 1991. It is still flying as XA-UPL with Air Tribe, operating fairly regularly into Phoenix, where I saw it in April 2019. It's older than me, and still earning its keep!
